Migizi Manidoo (Ojibwe: Eagle Spirit)

I created this sculpture using steel sheet metal.  I began by forming
sheet metal to form the beak and proceeded to move back onto the
head and then the body until the basic body shape of the eagle was
complete. Using a wire feed welder, welded ‘feather’ shapes onto
the body and then carving the details into each feather using a die
grinder and carbide bit. The body is a
hollow metal carving. The
next step was to cut out the individual wing and tail feathers to be
attached to the eagle. Each feather was hammered (domed) and
detailed using the die grinder and carbide bit method. The feet are
forged by heating and hammering over an anvil. The entire eagle
was sandblasted for cleaning and then ‘heat colored’ using oxygen
and acetylene torch. The eyes of this creature are made from
copper. The brass coloring on the beak and feet was applied by
heating the steel and brushing the metal with a brass brush. The
brass is transferred onto the steel giving it a nice patina. The base
of the tree is mounted to a temporary base for ease of moving.  I
left it this way so that when Migizii finds his home, the tree can be
placed onto a more permanent base of the buyer’s choice.

The 'raven', and crow are significant in many cultures....some believe to be ominous, others believe to be messengers of gods, carriers of
knowledge.... I don't really want to explain too much of the sculpture but leave it up to the viewer to decide what it means to them.... the title
is the only 'clue' that I give for my motivation in creating it. Created by welding steel parts together, building up areas with weld and then
carving detail into the steel. Mounted to a aspen stand.
Measures 27" x 11" x 12" tall.
